With BBQ places all over the area I had to find a place worth patronizing. Down South is our first and last choice :) The Ribs are out of this world!! Sides are amazing. I've been known to skip the meats in order to enjoy the mustard potato salad and beans, ( baked or green). We have a large family... More

My most favorite barbecue in South Alabama! Pork sandwich with slaw is perfect, the smoke flavor pork and vinegar based sauce is divine. I had there camp stew today, it was good, needed some Lima beans thrown in, lol. Only downside is they take cash only and no public restrooms. I would eat here a thousand times over.

Locally owned and it shows! Great food and customer service. Had them cater several events and everyone loved the food. Also, quick and easy to pick up after work.

This is just slightly off the beaten path, but we read the reviews and ended up making the trip to try it. This is a family owned business, they were very friendly even though we came close to the end of the day. Highly recommend the jalapeño corn bread and mustard potato salad as sides. Loved the slaw too. My... More

The BBQ here is very good, I would definitely recommend it for anyone looking for good barbecue. However the big surprise here is the Cornbread Barbecue Sandwich (or something like that). It is amazing! I won't explain what it is because it sounds odd, but it is a MUST on the list of thing to try.

A family of 4 ate for $33 and the food was great. Cornbread pancake bbq sandwich was awesome. Super friendly people and even better food. Will eat here again.

The ribs were literally sliding right down off the bone! The sauce, horseradish potato salad and baked beans all also had wonderful flavor to them. The food came out pretty quickly. The place is basically an order stand but you can eat in a covered area beside the place or in your car like we did. I'm so glad we... More

This is a great little place to stop by and get a great sandwich. The flavor is so good. The sides are always great too. They even offer deserts.

We had a BBQ sandwich on cornbread. The meat and slaw were very good, but next time I will just put it on a bun. The crackling cornbread was not as good as I expected. The potato salad was good, and the banana pudding was very good. Most people were taking their orders out because there is only a shed... More

Down-home cooking people and food. A very diverse menu. The owners are usually on site in there to serve their customers. I highly recommend
